Parliament

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.


Three things that I learned in NZ parliament are:

  • that there are 4 buildings that make the building 
  • the speaker has to give you permission to sit in the seats in the chamber 
  • there is  a special chamber below the bee hive where they go if there is an emergency

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marae is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi.


We have focused on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

Concept
Definition -
give the meaning of these concepts in your own words.
Tikanga
the correct procedure,way of doing things.

Maths-find fractions decimals and percentages

W.A.L.T: I can find fractions, decimals, and percentages of amounts expressed as whole numbers, simple fractions, and decimals.

I learnt how to do this type of maths strategy because if I got given this without  knowing anything I would have know idea what to do.


i had trouble with percentages  because before I started I wasn't the best with them.

This is my compare and contrast map

Parliament

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • John Key sits on the 4th seat on the right in the chamber.
  • Bill English sits on the 3rd seat on the right of the chamber.
  • Andrew little sits on the 4th seat on the left of the chamber.

KORU GAMES

the activity I did was football


One of my highlights were being undefeated  because our school has never done that in a sport yet and we were the first Oaklands team to do that. My second highlight was when i crossed the ball to Jake with my left foot because I can't cross and the fact that I did it with my left foot is a highlight. 

I am proud of winning Koru Games because our school football team has never done that before. 

Some advise for next years year 7's is to play fair.

C.A.R.E

CARE: My progress so far

The CARE award that I am working towards is bronze
 

The one area of CARE that I am doing best in is: excellents because:that's the one I have the least ticks on.

The one area of CARE that I need to work harder in is:respect              because: i haven't got as much as I would like.

To show my leadership qualities I am a role model to others in the CARE values by doing/showing these leadership traits:motivational

On the CARE SOLO matrix below I am at this SOLO level:             because:multistructural



Prestructural

Unistructural

Extended Abstract
I am not aware of the CARE values yet.
I know what the CARE values mean.

I need help to use them.
I can use the CARE values.


I need reminding to use them.
I can use the CARE values independently.
I can use the CARE values independently.

I can role model to others how to use the CARE values.

Maths assessment task multiplicative strategies

In Maths we have been learning to use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating with whole numbers.




The strategies we have been learning are:


- Estimate the reasonableness of large problems like 1 788 – 891. Could 497 be right?
- Use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems eg.
  64 – 48 = as (8 x 8) – (6 x 8) = 2 x 8= 16
- Use doubling / halving, trebling/ thirding and adjusting to solve multiplication problems,
 eg.  12 x 50 solved as 4 x 150= 600
- Use an algorithm to solve multiplication problems.
- Solve problems using simple cube numbers .
- Use an algorithm to solve division problems.
- Use standard form of division.


Here is a link to my Multiplicative Strategies Assessment which shows that I know why and how I use particular strategies. This doc also has screenshots to show which IXL activities I have completed as part of my learning. My test answers



My next step in my Maths Learning is…… Understand addition and subtraction of fractions, decimals and integers.

My care progress

I have done a check of my CARE progress so far this year.

I am proud of my progress/ I am doing OK/ I feel I could do much better.
(Highlight the one that applies to you and delete the ones that don’t)

I am doing OK because I almost have my bronze i'm only a few ticks behind but getting your bronze is harder.

How far away are you from reaching your BRONZE/SILVER i am only six highlights away from getting my bronze

The area of CARE that I need to try harder in C / A / R / E I chose Excellent because I don't have as much ticks in that coll-em.

To achieve my BRONZE/SILVER award quicker I need to focus on recording my ticks because I don't fill them in.

The one thing that I can do to improve my progress in CARE is keep focus on school and play with friends at lunch.

We will review CARE progress again at the end of the term.

Music

I can describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place

Over the past 7 weeks I have been learning to describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place

I can describe these characteristics in a piece of music…
melody:A series of single notes that are played over and over again.

harmony Multiple notes that are played together all at once
Major - Happy Song
Minor - Sad song

rhythm a strong, regular repeated pattern of movement or sound

timbre Sound quality. A special sound that makes each voice or instrument different. Has its own tone.

form The music plan. How the song is put together.




Here is an example of my learning my work

multiplicative strategies


In Maths we have been learning to use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating with whole numbers.


The strategies we have been learning are:
estimation as a check
use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems
use doubling halving and trebling
use an algorithm to solve multiplicative problems
solve problems using simple cube numbers


- Estimate the reasonableness of large problems like 1 788 – 891. Could 497 be right?
- Use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems eg.
  64 – 48 = as (8 x 8) – (6 x 8) = 2 x 8= 16
- Use doubling / halving, trebling and adjusting to solve multiplication problems,
 eg.  12 x 50 solved as 4 x 150= 600
- Use an algorithm to solve multiplication problems.
- Solve problems using simple cube numbers .
- Use an algorithm to solve division problems.

Here is a link to my Multiplicative Strategies Assessment which shows that I know why and how I use particular strategies. This doc also has screenshots to show which IXL activities I have completed as part of my learning.


My next step in my Maths Learning is…..My next step is to answer questions in Multiplicative Strategies faster so I can go rapidly through them.

reading vocabulary week 5

Year 7/8: I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.
